Cuban official recants Castro prediction
By VANESSA ARRINGTON, Associated Press Writer
HAVANA – Cuba’s foreign minister backed away Monday from his prediction that Fidel Castro will return to power by early December, raising questions about the pace of the communist leader’s recovery from intestinal surgery.
Felipe Perez Roque also told The Associated Press that there was no guarantee that Castro would be well enough to attend the postponed celebration of his 80th birthday on Dec. 2. Castro turned 80 on Aug. 13 but announced delayed festivities when he told Cubans of his surgery in late July.
Perez Roque had told the AP in September that he expected Castro to be fully back at the helm by early December, and when asked about the birthday celebrations had said: “I have no questions in my mind that we will be able to celebrate his birthday in December as he deserves.”
